Day 58: Yesterday I was excited to see that the two shrimpgobies seemed to have finally rediscovered each other. Up until now they have resided separately, one (#1, named Hop) 'under' the right-hand rock pile and the other (#2, named Skip) 'under' the left-hand pile. Then I noticed that #1 was resting on the sand in between the two piles close to #2 Following that #1 actually moved over into #2's 'home' i.e. 'under' the left-hand rock pile. However my happiness was short lived as #1 appeared later on in the day with a torn sailfin after which he or she proceeded to move back 'under' the right-hand rock pile. Darn it! I have no idea what this means. Are are they the same sex or actually a male/female pair who haven't got it together yet? They were sold to me as a male/female pair but I guess nobody really knows if this is indeed the case. It's fascinating to observe either way (as long as they are both happy in their own territories).
